Do or Die

As it is, the Saints Linebacking core is not the best. I have mentioned this before, but to give the benefit of the doubt, Cie Grant is coming to terms with reality. He has one more shot to prove himself. Grant is a bit underrated I will admit, but that is due to his injury prone nature. Well Grant has a season left to prove himself.

He Better Not

Apparently New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson's gave some type of confirmation that he was offered more than one billion dollars for his team! He better not sale! He didn’t accept the offer, instead the offer was to illustrate the financial problems that could prompt the team to move some where else like… Los Angeles.

Help Wanted

When I look at the Saints the first thing I notice is the lack of talent in linebacker position. The Saints desperately need an impact player to make a difference. Do the names Derrick Rodgers, James Allen, Courtney Watson, Sedrick Hodge, or Orlando Ruff ring a bell? Well these are your linebackers.

Hint…Hint… Peter Boulware is a free agent.

Rumor Mill

Howard is a ten plus sack guy, who had 11 sacks, last year after being, hurt quite a few games. His only knock has been injuries for the last two years.

The only reason we are shopping him is due to the great play of Will Smith and Charles Grant at the end of last year. Smith and Grant are cheaper and younger.

I don't expect the Saints to deal Howard to the Cowboys because the Cowboys are unwilling to part with any on there line backers, and Jerry Jones says he is not trading anymore draft picks.

In Need of Linebackers

It's no secret the Saints are desperate for linebacker help. They have 14 linebackers on the roster and have continued to pursue free-agent Chad Brown. Traditionally, only nine have made the final roster. Among the group are newcomers Levar Fisher, Alfred Fincher, Russel Rabe and Cabel Rohloff.

Third-year veteran Cie Grant, who has been sidelined for two seasons with knee injuries, is also in the mix. The increased competition could jeopardize the roster spots of veterans Orlando Ruff and Derrick Rodgers, who started in the middle and on the weak side for the majority of the past two seasons. If neither wins a starting spot they are likely roster cuts because of their veteran salaries.
